Research Grant Awarded

Dr. Paul Kimmel, an assistant professor of medicine at the George Washington University Medical Center, has received the Mrs. F.O. Day Memorial Research Award from the National Kidney Foundation of the National Capital Area.

The award was established to honor the late Mrs. Day, a volunteer and benefactor of the kidney foundation.

With the $20,000 research grant, Kimmel hopes to continue studying the relationship between chronic renal failure and zinc depletion. 5 Complete Film Training

Five Washingtonians recently completed a training program intended to encourage minorities to enter the film production industry.

Charles Anderson, James Lightfoot, Jennifer Thompson, Steven Scott and Langley Wiggins participated in a five-month training session sponsored by Local 15 of the National Association of Broadcast Engineers and Technicians and ARTS D.C.

"It is a pilot program, but we hope to continue it," said Lynne Zamil of ARTS D.C., a group sponsored by the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities and the Metropolitan Washington Council of the AFL-CIO.

The program was funded with a $32,000 grant from the city's Department of Employment Services. -- Anne Simpson
